Leo = H/A/M? Jason = H/A/M?

Did Leo die within seconds from looking into Jason's eyes? Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? Months? Years?

Was Leo's death an accident? Was he killed? Did he commit suicide? Did he die from a disease?

Is the relationship between Leo and Jason relevant? If so, are they friends? Relatives? Coworkers? Acquaintances? Enemies?

Would Leo still have died if he had not looked into Jason's eyes? Did he know he was going to die when he looked into Jason's eyes?

Did Jason also have the disease? Is the specific disease relevant?

Were Leo and Jason strangers? Had they met through one of their professions? Was Jason a doctor? Leo?

Enjay:
Would Leo still have died if he had not looked into Jason's eyes? Yes. Looking at any part of Jason would work, if other conditions remained the same. Did he know he was going to die when he looked into Jason's eyes? He could have been aware of that in last seconds of his life.

Did Jason also have the disease? No. Is the specific disease relevant? Yes. Maybe there are better words to describe that than "disease".

Were Leo and Jason strangers? Yes. Had they met through one of their professions? Yes, Leo's. Was Jason a doctor? No. Leo? Noish.

Did Leo have the disease before his encounter with Jason? Did anything happen to exacerbate the disease during this encounter? Did Jason do this? Could a blind man die from the same disease under similar circumstances? If Leo had not looked at any part of Jason, would he have lived?

Wizardofnz:
Did Leo have the disease before his encounter with Jason? No. Did anything happen to exacerbate the disease during this encounter? No, this encounter caused deadly condition. Did Jason do this? No, at least not deliberately. Could a blind man die from the same disease under similar circumstances? It's very unlikely that similar circumstances happen to a blind man. If Leo had not looked at any part of Jason, would he have lived? I'm going to say yes to this.

Did Leo die from: pathogen? Shock? Trauma? Organ failure? Better word than disease: Condition? Relevant when this happened? Would anyone looking at Jason in the same way have died? Optics relevant? If not, could looking through any optical device have prevented death? Such as sunglasses? or a mirror? Or a camera and monitor?
Did Jason have a disease? Did Jason die? If so: before the looking? After?

Galfisk:
Did Leo die from: pathogen? Shock? That was a factor... Trauma? Organ failure? ...that led to this. Better word than disease: Condition? See above. Relevant when this happened? No. Would anyone looking at Jason in the same way have died? Depends on circumstances and personal conditions. Optics relevant? No. If not, could looking through any optical device have prevented death? No. Such as sunglasses? No. or a mirror? No. Or a camera and monitor? Maybe if Leo had looked at Jason in monitor, he could have survived.
Did Jason have a disease? No. Did Jason die? No, but explore. If so: before the looking? This is relevant. After? No.

Enjay:
Was Leo aware that Jason was present before looking into his eyes? Yesish. Was there something scary about his eyes? Yes, given the circumstances. This is usually not scary about people's eyes.

Did Leo know any relevant information about Jason that contributed to the fear? Oh, yes.

Did Jason intend to scare Leo? To cause his death? No to both.

Was Jason sick? No. Injured? No. Disfigured? No. Was he wearing something relevant? Possibly. Doing something relevant? Yope.

Had Leo committed a relevant crime at any point? Had Jason? No to both.

Oh, that must be it! Leo is making Jason ready for burial/autopsy/cremation/embalming/some other thing you do with dead people, when Jason suddenly wakes up and their eyes meet?

Galfisk:
Oh, that must be it! Leo is making Jason ready for burial/autopsy/cremation/embalming/some other thing you do with dead people, when Jason suddenly wakes up and their eyes meet? Yes, that's indeed it.

***********SPOILER********************
Just exactly as GalFisk put it:
Leo, sure that Jason is dead, is making Jason ready for autopsy, when Jason suddenly wakes up and their eyes meet. Leo is scared to death and dies of heart attack.


Thanks for playing, especially Doriana and GalFisk for the solve.
